Make this sauce only when you have truly ripe tomatoes and an excellent olive oil on hand. Because the sauce only has three ingredients, each one needs to be the best you can find.

big cloves garlic, peeled and sliced thin
very ripe medium tomatoes, chopped
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place a pound of pasta (preferably spaghetti) into boiling water, stir, and bring back to a boil.
Bring the sauce up to a simmer uncovered and season with sea salt to taste (you may need to add more). When the pasta is 1 minute from being done, scoop 3/4 of a coffee mug full of the pasta water and pour into the sauce. Bring the sauce back to a strong simmer and drizzle in remaining olive oil. Drain pasta well and scoop into the sauce. Turn and coat evenly, allowing the pasta to absorb the sauce. Let stand for 1 minute.
